Happy Birthday, Little Moose
Ever since my son's first visit to Zoo Atlanta in August, he's been obsessed with pandas! So when it came time to pick a birthday party theme for the Little Moose's (so nicknamed by his pediatrician for his hearty growth his first year), it was a no-brainer!
Moose's 2nd Birthday fell during Thanksgiving week, so we delayed his party until yesterday so all of his friends would be in town. I ordered these balloons from Oriental Trading Company to decorate.
And we noshed on these panda cupcakes. (Well, to be fair, I ended up ordering iced vanilla cupcakes and decorated them myself; last week was shaping up to be one of "those weeks" and I didn't think a cranky Mommy Moose would contribute to the party atmosphere.)
I also served this Man Dip recipe with corn chips, pigs in blankets, and pizza biscuits. The pizza biscuits are a favorite in our house and I figured I would freeze the leftovers - except that there were only three left over!
Judging by the amount of food consumed, the length of time the mostly-adult guests stayed (despite any real "activities" - c'mon, it's a two-year-old's party), and the extra hour of sleep the Moose took this morning, I'd say the party was a success!
He even got a gorgeous new panda from one of his aunts! Happy Birthday, my (not so) little Moose!
